  • I know a lot of moms who do this, I tried but I waited too long to try and my son knew the difference and wasn't willing to drink the breast milk. I think if your child will drink it it is a fabulous idea! Much healthier than drinking cow's milk!

  • No, I never thought of it, and I don't think I'll ever try it. I'm sure it is a lot healthier than cows milk, but it seems weird anyway.

  • My 8 year old daughter has tasted it (from a cup of course) and wants me to pump for her. She likes the way it taste. My 10 year old won't even taste it........can't say I blame her.
